Despite the challenging economy, Americans continue to give to those in need.
GivingTuesday, following Thanksgiving, raised a record $3.1 billion in 24 hours for charitable causes in the U.S. Despite the difficult economic year that many households have experienced, with inflation in the costs of basic goods, gas and housing, people were still willing to give, said GivingTuesday CEO Asha Curran.
"That’s really what we saw yesterday," she told The Associated Press. "That whatever it is that people are experiencing, they were as generous as they had the capacity to be."
